Neil's Sunday evening programme is a mix of reviews and previews from the world of arts and culture, mixed with a selection of music that will leave you wanting more.

Winchester’s historic Cathedral was filled with music on Friday night with the 24 hour organ-a-thon. Neil chats with one of the organists Andrew Lumsden and a couple who spent the night in the cathedral.

A wreath was laid on onboard HMS Victory to mark the 206th anniversary of Nelson's famous victory. Our reporter Carl Ralley reports from Portsmouth's historic dockyard. BBC Radio Solent’s poet laureate Chris Carnegy ponders the notion of Admiral Lord Nelson’s reaction to Portsmouth’s Lib Dem MP Mike Hancock’s recent indiscretion.

Erasure’s Andy Bell tells Katie Martin about life on the road as he prepares for his gig this week in Southampton and Lena Samuels reviews Rowan Atkinson’s new film Johnny English Reborn.

Hampshire county bowls player Steve Whitehead keeps us up to date with the world of bowls and the A-Z playlist theme this week marks the end of the long running drama Spooks.

For those on the roads across the south of England, there is travel news as it happens. And a smile is promised as the weekend draws to a close.
